Summer Mini – A Little Bit Of Magic & Elements Of Style

I used a stamp set A Little Bit Of Magic from the Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini Catalog.

A Little Bit Of Magic


Summer Mini Catalog #120033
















 Cardstock used is crushed curry, lavender lace, old olive and  naturals white .

The image was colored with  Stampin’ Up Classic inks, in the same colors as the cardstock. Using the aqua painter .

 I distressed the edges of the two layers using the Stampin’ Up! cutter kit.

And the background was embossed with the Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folder – Flowers

The next card didn’t turn out so well. I tried something different . I used the top note die to make this card. Attaching two of the die cuts using glossy white paper. I used the brayer on the tope note die with Bashful blue and Always artichoke classic ink. Right away after I did that. I used my spray bottle and spritzed some water onto the top note. Using the flowers from the Elements Of Style stamp set. I stamped the image and colored it in with the aqua painter. Using Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery and Rose red.

  1. Lisa I like both cards, but I love the bottom one. You say it didn’t turn out so well. I say it is beautiful! Love the colors and love the way you painted the flowers!!

  2. Lisa, Lisa…both cards are darling! You take things to the next level and they’re awesome. Whodathunkit? Now do I have to start getting more stamps after I just got rid of hundreds? OMGosh! Those are luscious! I will just have to resist. First ribbon, then paper, then ink and markers — then more stamps. Hold me to it, okay? I’m counting on you! Meanwhile, keep making those gorgeous samples for us……….luv them!

  3. I actually adore that image you used.
    That second card though is amazing. You may think it’s not the best, but I disagree.

You have done it once again, and have come through with some great ideas!
